Packing Tips
What to pack for your Adventure

Your travel wardrobe should be informal, comfortable and carefree. Clothing which can be layered is the most suitable, for example, a T-shirt, sweater or sweatshirt, and windbreaker or jacket. The emphasis on all our adventures is on casual attire.

Recommended items:

  • Hiking boots (waterproof or water-resistant) as they provide excellent traction for walks on sometimes-slippery terrain.

  • Comfortable "closed" walking shoes with rubber soles and excellent support. 

  • T-shirts, polo shirts, and/or other comfortable short/long-sleeved shirts.

  • Gloves as can sometimes be cold in boats

  • Light walking trousers, preferably windproof and showerproof

  • A bathing suit or two - for blue Lagoon and hot tubs

  • Long-sleeved shirts for protection from the sun and wind

  • Windbreaker or light sweaters

  • Rain jacket and waterproof trousers.

  • Sunhat and windproof hat

  • Sunglasses.

  • Waterproof sunblock (30 SPF minimum).

  • Waterproof insect repellent.

  • A small backpack or rucksack.

  • Waterproof bags to protect your camera and binoculars.

  • Binoculars for wildlife watching (only if you have a light pair)

  • Camera, lenses and plenty of memory cards.

  • Extra camera batteries and adaptors if you need to recharge.

  • Prescription medicines. If certain medications are part of your daily health regimen and are vital to your health, make sure you bring an adequate supply for the duration of your ecotour.

  • Suitable Adaptors Iceland uses Northern European standards (220 volts), and Europlug sockets with two round prongs. Your adapter should be type "F" or type "C"—both are labelled as Northern European. In Scotland the power plugs and sockets are of type G. The standard voltage is 230 V, and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.

  • Underwear and socks. Bring at least six sets (lighter dries quicker). Bamboo or cotton/nylon-blend socks dry faster than conventional cotton. Bring at least two pairs of comfortable hiking socks.

  • Money. Bring your preferred mix of a debit card and credit card. Please ensure that your bank is aware of your travel plans so there is no problem with the card on your journey. Bring an emergency stash of hard US cash (in $20 bills)

  • Journal. Nothing is more significant than taking with you an empty writing book that gets filled with all the fantastic experiences of your trip. On your return home, this will be one of your most treasured souvenirs. 

Travel Light

The secret of travelling to remote regions is to travel as light as possible. At igot2travel we request that all travellers take no more than 12Kg to 15Kg and a carry on bag no more than 4kg. Preferably this would be one that could be used for day trips when out.

Be Prepared 

As many of our adventures involve travelling to the cooler regions of Europe it is advisable to layer well and to ensure you have decent waterproof clothing and good hiking boots. These are not suitable locations for trainers when hiking. There is often cold winds blowing in from the Atlantic and we always advise good headgear in the form of wooly hats etc
